HICKSVILLE VIETNAM WAR ERA MEMORIAL - PROJECT UPDATE
This month we are introducing the final Confirmed List of Names, organized alphabetically by graduating class year, just as it will appear on the actual Memorial!
Good progress is being made on starting Memorial construction, under the leadership of John Tranchina, HHS 1964 and we remain on target for an initial dedication of the Memorial's Center Stone and it's plaques, mounted on the Memorial's footers, for late spring and the final dedication of the completed Memorial with all names listed in early fall of this year. You have all seen the Center Stone Plaque in earlier HixNews updates. Below it, will now appear the recently completed plaque honoring our 17 KIA's (killed in action). Below this brief intro is a photo of the completed KIA Plaque.
Please click on the Honoring Our Veterans tab of this issue to find the full report on all Project activity, to include construction status, donations, the full list of donors to date, plus the new link mentioned above, showing the entire Confirmed List of Names, organized by class year, as it will appear on the completed Memorial.
Should you wish to make any comments on the Project's status, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We are including a writeable document that you can fill in on you computer and, after completing the document, forward to email@example.com

fortunate that Pat saw many of the changes that surfaced over the years.

never looking for sympathy or an ďattaboy!Ē She
didnít complain but just kept going like the energizer bunny. Pat shared

she lacked because of her dependence on oxygen. Her death created a void
that exists today.
efforts brought many hours of joy to HixNews readers who waited patiently
each month for tidbits of information. Pat, along with Linda Piccerelli
Hayden, a 1960 graduate, were the pioneers of HixNews. They spent many
hours scouring through emails from former students gathering information
that was typed into an email and sent out the beginning of each month.

was not at all unusual because family was her life. She spent many hours
enjoying those she loved most.
